CoLee Wilkinson is an illustrator and squirrel sanctuaryist based in Newport Beach, California. She works out of her home studio, primarily at her sun-drenched drawing table where you will always find tubes of watercolor and gouache, imaginative drawings, as well as a bowl of peanuts for the squirrels that visit the adjacent window.  

Although her university years were spent earning a law degree, starting a family reignited the passion for art and creativity she had in her childhood. Once her son was old enough, she sought formal training in drawing in painting and has been making art ever since.  She is thrilled to be opening a shop of her own in the near future.
